Demystifying scientific research for young people
To propose an immersion in the daily life of laboratories
Offer personalized supervision by young researchers
The InitiaSciences project aims to demystify scientific research to young people in high school and CEGEP by offering them the opportunity to be accompanied by young researchers (master's, doctorate or post-doctorate). Forone school year, the students will have access to the resources of a laboratory and will be able to get involved in cutting-edge research projects. During this unique immersive experience in Quebecand thanks to the personalized support of their mentors, the young people will develop unique skills.
Our socio-community mission
We target schools for in-person presentations and invitations to our events based on factors that may influence exposure to science resources and careers.
Our solidarity grant program allows some mentees to take part in the project regardless of their financial constraints.
We offer an alternative to dropping out of school: we provide a financially compensated after-school engagement opportunity that encourages young people in their abilities and pursuit of their education.
